A Pennsylvania man has been charged with sexually assaulting a 15-year-old girl following a trip to a haunted house, according to WTAJ.
Chadrick R. Magee, 36, visited the Halloween attraction with a family member and the girl and her family Saturday night, police said.
After the visit, the girl’s father, a friend and co-worker of Magee’s, invited him and his family member to stay over at their home in Somerset rather than make the hour-long drive back to their home in Martinsburg.
State police said Magee had been drinking whiskey and beer and allegedly assaulted the girl on a sofa when the other people in the house had left the room, WTAJ said.
When police spoke with Magee Monday morning, he told them the girl followed him into the bathroom, and he told her “he couldn’t do this, that she is 15,” and left, according to charging documents.
During a second interview, he said he remembered going to the bathroom while the girl was there and remembered kissing her but couldn’t remember anything else.
He was arrested on charges of rape, statutory sexual assault, aggravated indecent assault by forcible compulsion, and aggravated indecent assault of a person less than 16 years of age, all felonies. He was also charged with a misdemeanor count of corruption of minors.
Magee is being held in the Somerset County Jail in lieu of a $25,000 bail. He is scheduled for a preliminary hearing on October 27.
